    Having said that... Why are we wanting to throw the book at the shooter in this case? We know no details. Maybe somebody shoot themselves? We don't know. But, if it was criminal behavior, give them "transportation".

    Exile is what they should really face. Round them up and ship them out. Liberia is looking good for these folks. Or, perhaps some of the smaller, uninhabited islands around the world. Let them learn to take care of themselves in the wild.

    If shooting others is all there is..... just keep dancing...Don't spend 76,000 per day on the person who shot the victim.....just go about life as if nothing happened. Just keep dancing....

    Under exisiting federal law, possession of a gun during commission of a crime is punishable by five years in federal prison with no parole. Actually firing the gun during commission of the crime increases prison term to ten years, again with no parole.
    Street crime dropped dramatically in cities where these laws were used, but the effect was short-lived as certain politicians put a stop to the convictions. Search "Project Exile" for more.

    Put the shooter in jail for 20 years...all 20, and that will give him time to think about a better solution to his problems.
